Sitka's rural status comes under renewed scrutiny

Sitka’s rural status may be in jeopardy, again.  Under federal law, rural communities in Alaska have a subsistence priority in the management of wild resources.  The Federal Subsistence Board held its last review in 2006.  At that time, Sitka narrowly retained its rural designation.  The Alaska Outdoor Council is calling that decision into question.
